After sending one son through BMRCHS we DEFINITELY will send our other two sons there to receive a superb college prep. education . State of the art facilities and recently added a 28 million dollar addition. The school is 100% WiFi Mac OS based campus. This school is worth every penny versus the trash taught in our public schools . BMRCHS is an outstanding place for academic and athletic achievement . Top notch instructors & awesome family atmosphere .

This school made me want to kill myself. The teacher-Student communication lacked terribly! When I switched to public school I was BEHIND! Do not send your children here! Verbal harassment is not okay if you have money here, BUT if your just a student that doesn't donate anything go ahead! Harass them all you want! Worst place in the WORLD. Not a family community at ALL!

Our son graduated last year as a National Merit Scholar & received a 5 year FULL RIDE scholarship to OSU ! Yes - OUTSTANDING prep school that challenges every student to achieve their best! Solid conservative Catholic values + emphasis on community outreach. Every student must complete 300+ hours of community service. This years senior class built a Habitat for Humanity House !!! 1st class facilities and 4A state champs in 8 sports !

My three grandchildren are students here. Excellent school. They are so smart and the faculty is wonderful. I am so happy that they have had such a wonderful education and preparation for life. Hazel Innis, Tyler, Texas

I transferred to McGuinness my freshman year and I'm so thankful that I did. The school is wonderful academically but socially as well. The teachers were so welcoming and they genuinely cared about your success. I had a great experience there and would recommend this school to any parent or child.

I went to McGuinness and it definitely prepared me to be successful in college and to succeed in life as an adult.

Incredible faith-based school and educational environment. I have two students who have attended and they loved the academic, the athletic and social aspects of McGuinness. One of the best decisions we ever made for our children. I know it has prepared them well for college and to be productive citizens.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
